Posted By: jpThese will not work on all honing rods. They seem to be sized for 1/2 inch rods, with a gap to accommodate slightly narrower rods. They are too wide to use on the 5/16 inch Idahone rod supplied with the Edge Pro, and they will probably sit perched above a thicker rod, like the MAC rod, which may make use there awkward (but I do not have a MAC rod to test them on). These are probably best suited to rods 3/4 to 1/2 inch in diameter, and I suggest that the product description be updated to reflect this. As a bonus, these can be carefully separated (so as not to kink/damage the spring) and used on a flat stone. There is nothing magic about these though - they will help you get a better idea of the angle you are aiming for, but good technique is still required.
